One of the most grueling aspects of learning web development or just learning how to code in general is the fact that there are many different languages that you are going to need to learn. You might not need to learn everything at once and I do recommend that you pick a focus language to start off with but eventually you will need to get around to having a basic understanding of almost everything.
Good question right?
